    So, this is what happened at Lake Peigneur, Nov. 20, 1980. The oil rig accidentally drilled into the salt mine below and the lake drained down into the mine sucking down watercraft, trees, even buildings, into a big whirlpool. It’s worth watching this whole 10 minute video: Lake Peigneur disaster on YouTube.

    Axelrod is nowhere to be seen, so I think he made a run for it. I’m sure the police showing up at the betting joint was all the reason he needed to escape.

    Do any of you think that panel 3 is a waste because it states the obvious?


    I don’t think it’s a waste. It’s a foreshadowing of something important to come, involving the salt mine, the existence of which we know nothing about until now.

    I like your poetry, too.

    … they would have preferred Jimmy shoot Ted without what they would regard as unnecessary filler such as story development.


    That would have been much too abrupt in my opinion. I expect Ted will survive. We might need him in the next presidential election run-up.

    @SYDNEY
    A THANKS to NEIL . . .


    You’re welcome. I was just trying to picture whether it was a possible idea at all, knowing it wasn’t very practical, anyway. It took looking up some facts and doing a few calculations, but I think I have a better handle on the situation after that.

    The gold has only just been stolen, how can the statute of limitations pass so quickly?


    I think the idea is that the gold might show up years later. Somehow, I don’t see that happening because the story probably has to be slightly more self-contained than that. Anyway, we really have no idea what happened to the gold or where it is now. I wonder if we’ll find out.

    The Lake area is a “Bee- Hive”, of drilling activity
    Staffed with many to observe any unusual or ‘questionable’ activity ! ?


    I think this is the fatal flaw in Jimmy’s plan (though his plan does have other flaws). The lake is a horrible place to hide anything, given that it’s swarming with activity in every direction. I don’t know who took the gold or where it is. We know it wasn’t Ted, but Jimmy doesn’t know that.

    But ‘no sweat’ !. There are the Police Helicopters.


    Well, Tracy was reminiscing about air cars just a few days back, but helicopters are a real possibility.

    The salt mine operation could be problematic but I think it’s best not to say why until at least another day.

    So, now, apparently not even Jimmy knows where the gold is hidden. Now we’re in trouble. It looks like Jimmy should have supervised the burying of the gold in person.
